    CCleaner asks you if you want to make a backup of the registry keys you are going to remove when you run the reg cleaner part of it. If you decide to do that, make sure you make the backup & place them somewhere on the computer that has easy access should you inadvertently remove something important. This way you can re-install the removed keys with a click.
    Revo does that too, also makes a restore point before uninstalling.

    I think you click on "merge" to recover, correct?
    Thank you but if the PC is modified in the interim I think there could be an issue.
    I will not be using the registry cleaner and hope the Windows section is safe. So far so good.

    Good mention, that's true, Revo also does that.

    How do I restore registry backups?

    Right-click on the .REG file created and select 'Merge'.
    By default these files will be saved into your 'My Documents' folder.
    I generally put them on my desktop for easy access & then after a couple days move them to a folder on the desktop & keep them for a couple weeks just to be sure.
